Samsung has introduced a new android-based dual-screen flip phone, Samsung W2016, in China. The Samsung W2016 is now listed on Samsung's China website. But the website doesn't mention the pricing and availability details of the Samsung W2016.
The Samsung W2016 features two 3.9-inch Super Amoled WXGA touchscreens with 768x1280 pixels resolution, on the inside and the outside of the top half of the handset. It also features a T9 physical keyboard.
The handset is powered by a 1.5GHz octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM. It comes with 64GB of inbuilt storage. The device doesn't support expandable storage options. The new dual-screen flip phone sports a 16MP rear camera with LED flash and a 5MP front-facing camera. The camera sensors on the Samsung W2016 can be expected to pack the same sensors in the company's high-end handsets such as Samsung Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, and Galaxy Note 5.
The Samsung W2016 runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system with the Samsung's TouchWiz running on top. The handset has been built mainly out of metal and glass. The dual-SIM handset offers 4G LTE, 3G, and 2G connectivity options. It also offers other connectivity options such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, GLONASS, and Micro-USB connectivity.
The handset is backed by a 2000mAh battery. It may support fast-charging that can offer up to 50 percent of charge in just 30 minutes of charging. The new flip phone from Samsung measures 120.4x61x15.1mm and weighs 204 grams.
